Okay -- you're tired of POV footage, I get it.

Give this one a chance, trust me:

Nice, and I like your choice of music.

Thanks for posting this. Marcus is a phenomenal skier, and by all accounts a great guy. He very simply loves to ski, anywhere, anytime. He was one of the country's top junior skiers, skiing out of Snowbird; a very talented speed skier very close to the USST system. He switched gears after starting to race in college. I understand it was because while the racing was fun, free skiing was a lot more fun, and to him a bigger challenge. There was an end game to NCAA racing, and a wide open horizon to "skiing."

 

I love to watch video of his skiing, and to see pics of it. He's got the rock solid technique of a high level ex-racer, and a touch for the snow that you only develop if you're a great athlete, and happened to grow up skiing at a place like Snowbird, where he obviously got in plenty of powder days! He reminds me a bit of Daron Rahlves, or the Christ brothers, though I think Marcus is a better powder skier. Marcus has won the Banzai at Squaw, BTW. 

 

He's a great ambassador for the sport and for his sponsors. He's still an alpine coach for some of the summer at Mt. Hood, and the kids he coaches evidently come away with great experiences. My understanding {pretty first hand} is that he's got boundless enthusiasm for everything to do with the sport, and for that matter the mountains. The skiing that the kids do under his wing might not be classic Mt. Hood gates in lanes, but they all improve as skiers and racers. They probably learn a lot about passion, as well.

 

And yeah, Marcus is the guy who turned somebody that I share DNA with onto Blizzard Flipcores about three three seasons ago. Has lead to a lot of them being skied in our family. I get the impression that Marcus is very good to and for Blizzard, and they they're good to and for him. 

 

Great fun to watch him ski. He, BTW, is also extremely talented on the other side of a camera, as a ski photographer. Some amazing stuff. A lot of race photos. Look him up on Instagram. 

 

I'm thinking we'll see Marcus continue to emerge as a big name in the sport. Hope so.
